Default TWP Holder/2012 FSW Applications done inside of Canada

I wanted to start a thread for people who are already working in Canada on a TWP and made their 2012 FSW applications inside of Canada to see how that differs from those applications done outside of Canada in regards to processing timelines.



..........as the waiting game continues

I'm clearly missing something, but aren't all FSW applications processed outside of Canada? Which visa office is yours being processed at?

I got the impression that the OP was trying to see if there was a difference between say London processing the FSW application of someone say still in the U.K. or that of London processing the FSW application of someone like the OP (working in Canada under a TWP).

Substitute London and the U.K. for whichever relevant office/country

Maybe that's what the OP meant. But that'll usually be two different routes (i.e. FSW cat 1 v FSW cat 2), so not sure they can be compared.

Thanks guys for the response.

I guess my point was really focused more on FSW-2 applicants since i am already working in canada on a TWP. I wanted to know if an application based on FSW-2 with TWP already working in Canada is processed faster compared to FSW-1 applicants based outside of canada.


I believe the VO will be different since if your're working in canada already, the VO will be CPP-OTTAWA and if you're not already in Canada, your VO will be LVO...........please correct me if i am wrong.

Ah yes, what used to be Buffalo is now Ottawa. But it could be either, anybody in Canada can either choose Ottawa (if they've been admitted to Canada for a year or more), or London (or wherever their country of nationality is). Most people seem to choose London for processing as it was always historically quicker than Buffalo.

Hello Calgarian_Hunter
I am working in Canada for the last 2 years and I applied under FSW w/TWP in Aug 2012 last week, CIO received application in next 2 days...and they charged my card and put the application 'in process' only end of Oct 2012. Share your timelines as well.

Regards

It has never seemed to be faster, so I am looking forward to seeing if it is nowadays. It has always seemed that it is slower as CIC know you are on a TWP so are okay for now.

TWP issued at POE 02-May-2012
FSW application sent to CIO 1-June-2012

Got email of positive approval 6-July-2012


below is what my status shows in ecas (In-Process)

We received your application for permanent residence on June 7, 2012.



So i believe the next step is medical request since i had all requested documents turned in with my application.

Boy! I wish my 2010 FSW application timeline read like that. At this rate you'll be done and dusted before us!

Good luck
